Check your tit flocks - yellow browed warbler today at Sunderland village
October 10, 2018 09:16PM
A bit of an arrival of Yellow-browed Warblers in the northwest this afternoon. Jean Roberts and I independently picked up a very mobile presumed new arrival calling in trees at Sunderland village seemingly heading north through the village. Not possible to remain and search in detail

Cutting edge stuff tomorrow with a tough wind but it's from the right direction to produce a few more overnight (also favourable for Firecrest and Black Redstart). Need to stay out of the hides and find areas of tree cover sheltered from SE winds or similar coastal bits like Heysham head

A few migrants Heysham NR office area - Chiffchaff, Blackcap, a few more Goldcrest than of late (very low numbers this autumn), dispersing Treecreeper (3rd record of year), migrant Robin plus a few Redwing etc overhead.

Nowhere else checked by us yet

Monday am looks next best bet for something (including decent Yellow b warbler and winter thrushes arrival weather) and the conditions to find it in which are going to be challenging conditions. Not been an easy autumn - a succinct summary of a storm swept birdless Fair Isle at peak migration time has been posted recently by Steve Arlow.
